Lyrics

The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on

The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on
loved dancing all night long
The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on
loved dancing all night long

So far away from home
So free and so alone
His head up in the clouds
His body in the crowds

The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on
loved dancing all night long
The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on
loved dancing all night long

To rise above the pain
To prove them all wrong again
To shake away at last
the secret in his past
He is exactly where he wants to be
in a world of his own

His shirt falls to the floor
He's taking off some more
The crowd all love the show
Just how far will he go?

The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on
loved dancing all night long
The boy who couldn't keep his clothes on
loved dancing all night long

From

A red letter day
